    Stock Radio won't kick on?

    Hey all I'm looking for some advice. I've been trying to add AUX-INPUTS on my stock radio using a PIE adapter. The stock radio won't turn back on? Even wired up the way it came originally?

    I've checked the power cable that goes into the radio and there is no power going through the cables. There is black,red,white,yellow and brown. I've tested the red/white/yellow with the igniton on ACC and in the ON position with no luck, there is no voltage going through the wires? . So I pulled out the manual and found all the fuses that lead to the radio and checked them, to find none are blown.

    The vehicle is an 05' Tacoma. Any suggestions? I beleive my lighter and aux power outlet are on the same fuse and they work... I'm totally stumpled/frustrated. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

    I did this to my friends car the other day. I hooked up a sub to a stock radio, we couldn't figure out why it wouldn't turn on. (Beisdes he had a POS car), a fuse popped, check the fuses.

    Strange. I hooked an adapter to my Aux (suppose to be for cd changer) in my '02 highlander and didn't have any problems. I used it for about a year with XM Radio going through it. Recently removed the radio to install the carpc instead and all was working fine.

    I assume you tested the power wire with a voltmeter to make sure you do have power? I also assume you disconnected the PIE adapter as well? Did it work at all with the PIE adapter?

    It's not working at all now, pie adapter on or pie adapter off... I think tommorow I'm going to check EVERY fuse... but I mean I checked the radio fuses (the ones the owners manual says are the radio fuses)

    Could there be a fuse in line between the fuse box and the head unit maybe? Check for continuity between the fuse box and the head unit.

    don't think about this, just check ALL the fuses in the fusebox.... I bet one of the others are blown, you'll see

    There are 3 different places for fuses on Toyota cars/trucks (Engine compartment, Driver side kick pannel, and Passenger side kick pannel.) The one for radio and most other stuff is under driver side kickpannel.
    Unless the wiring has been modified, otherwise, there is NO in-line fuse for the radio.
    Is there ANY other devices in the truck not working? Doom light, Cig lighter, aux power output, gauge/dash lights.
    BTW, Toyota wiring color code is NOT the same as most after market wiring color code. There is NO solid color on the wiring harness.
